First title defense (and rightfully so) for Anthony Pettis is against TJ Grant. Nice to see UFC sticking to this one, TJ earned that shit.

BJ and Frankie are coaching a season of TUF then fighting at 145.

BJ has no chance of making weight.

Jacare wants the winner of Bisping/Munoz at the start of next year. Jacare may go up to 205.

All I can think is at least another title won't be on hold for this dumb show. Don't care who the coaches are, TUF has been stale for years now. I'd rather not have anyone relevant on hold for 9 months due to this show anymore.

Its interesting enough.  Thing is there is absolutely NO need to have a title hang in the balance for the show.  This is how you build a big co-main and help the champs draw big.

It was gonna be Edgar/Faber but they couldn't agree on a weight. Such a waste of Frankie's talent, he's going to retire BJ and it'll only be sad and nothing else.

They pushed Mir/Reem to 169 with JJ/Glover.

Probably better for both guys to get more of a break.

Bisping vs. NICK DIAZ might headline a card in London next year. It would be at 185.

Doubt Bisping is an interesting enough matchup to make Nick give a shit. Unlikely this fight happens.

http://www.sherdog.com/news/news/Breaking-News-Ben-Askren-Released-by-Bellator-59377

I'm throwing it in here because I am starting the rumour that he's gonna debut against Dong Hyun Kim. Spread it around and we can probably make that fight happen, TRTSM.

also lol at Rebney's backhanded compliments. If Ben were completely one-dimensional he'd be getting submitted left and right. It's p. funny hearing Dana call this guy Bjork now. They're cut from the same cloth, Dana is just smarter/luckier I guess.

Rebney is coming off like a total asshole in all of this. Spend years talking up the guy at the best welterweight in MMA and can't shove him out the door fast enough. I think he knew Ben wasn't going to lose that title in a very thin division there, and while he has a couple of recent finishes, his fights aren't thrilling.

Dana was burned badly on Jake Shields (although he should have fucking known what he was getting). I wouldn't be surprised if he was a little hesitant to go after Ben.

Three more fights announced for the Georgia card....

Justin Edwards cuts to LW vs Ramsey Nijem
Jason High vs Adlan Amagov
Trevor Smith vs Brian Houstin

He's more of the more likeable fighters out there but goddamn Jason High is going to get hurt something fierce.

A few days ago I watched my performance, and it pissed me off. It was embarrassing. It was terrible. It was a terrible performance. I was totally sloppy with all my techniques, I was using the wrong techniques, I wasn't using a lot of the steps that I'd been practicing in the gym, it was just bad overall. It was very frustrating to watch.

Rory says the UFC already has him matched up with a 'motivating' opponent. Happening in early 2014, no specific name/date announced.

I don't buy that quote. Not in the sense that it isn't real but I doubt if he'd won the split decision he'd be coming out and saying those things. He fought exactly like he fought Ellenberger, the only difference is that this time he was facing an opponent who wasn't scared of eating a jab.

Tough fight for both guys. A must win for Diego, but Jury has been on a tear lately.
